Maryland-in-Nice turned 30 in 2019!

To commemorate the event, students on the fall cohort created this video describing their favorite aspects of the program. Check it out:

Nice offers students an exciting and engaging place in which to study French language and culture. Located on Côte d'Azur, Nice is the fifth largest city in France and the center of the "French Silicon Valley". Combining modern innovations with traditions and history, Nice has museums, art galleries, shopping centers, sports arenas and easy access to both Mediterranean beaches and the Alps. Earning 18 credits per semester, students are immersed in the French language through their coursework, student language partner exchange and housing options. The program offers opportunities to explore the local region as well as other parts of France through excursions throughout the semester.

Maryland-in-Nice partners with the English Department the Universite de Nice to provide a language partner program where Maryland students meet up each week during the semester with a French-speaker. Students speak in French half of the time and in English for the other half. This is an exciting opportunity for students to meet their French peers, build connections and explore student life in Nice.
